Nicole Eggert Files Police Report Against Scott Baio For Sexual Assault

The actress filed a police report against her former Charles in Charge co-star, Scott Baio, on Tuesday, after publicly alleging that Baio sexually abused her for years, starting when she was 14 years old.

"Yesterday Nicole Eggert and I met with two police detectives from the sexual assault unit at my law firm", Hollywood attorney Bloom told THR in a statement on Wednesday. "When Nicole started tweeting about this again late previous year, shortly after the major stories broke about sexual harassment in entertainment, my attorneys sent her and Alex Polinsky a letter advising and requesting that they take their allegations to law enforcement for a full investigation", Scott further shared. Baio says he had sex with her one time, but only when she was 18. In addition, Nicole's attorney gave the detectives a list of witnesses who claim they observed inappropriate behavior by Scott toward Nicole.

The actress took Baio up on his dare that she take her claims to authorities, rather than continuing to air them on social media or in TV interviews. She also said she had always been reluctant to speak up about what she claims really happened between her and Baio because she was ashamed and embarrassed. Officer Norma Eisenman confirmed to USA TODAY Wednesday only that "the LAPD is looking into the allegations", in which Eggert accuses Baio of having sex with her when she was underage about 30 years ago when both were starring on Charles in Charge. "If anyone else has information about this matter please contact us", Bloomd continued.

"It started with shaming - fat shaming me all the time", she told ET.

In an update late Thursday, the National Transportation Safety Board said it has spoken to four witnesses who raised the concerns. Chuck Fleischmann told The Indianapolis Star he was standing with a cup of coffee when the train hit the truck, throwing him.

Baio, 57, insists it was only one encounter and she was 18 at the time. The incidents allegedly occurred between 1986 and 1990, and there is a question as to whether or not the statute of limitations has run out. "Given her constantly changing story and continuous search for publicity, we look forward to their investigation".

The actress first came forward with the accusations against her "Charles in Charge" co-star on January 28.

David Weintraub, Eggert's longtime manager of 15 years, added that Eggert walked away feeling positive after the conversation she had with the detectives.

"I don't know if you've ever been on a sitcom set, but on any given day - on every day - and especially Charles in Charge, which was like a picnic every day. there's teachers, parents, family, crew, producers, my dad", Baio told GMA's Amy Robach.

After Eggert first went public with her molestation allegations, Baio defended himself on Twitter and posted a Facebook Live video to try and "prove" her allegations were false.

"How any of this could have happened is absolutely impossible". She's never had to defend what she's saying so much.

Baio responded with an appearance on Good Morning America and repeated his denial of Eggert's claims.
